Hello

How is it June already? Now that the school year is wrapping up for you, we want to stay connected and support you as you start your transition to life after high school!

As you know, one of the ways we continue support is through the Detroit Regional Dollars for Scholars scholarship! The DRDFS scholarship opened yesterday, June 1, and you have until September 1 to claim or defer your scholarship funds for the 2020-2021 academic year. For more information, please check your email or visit our website.

Keep your eye out for additional resources, reminders and support throughout the summer. If you have any questions regarding your scholarship or the scholarship process, please reach out to Erin.

College Decision Video Instructions

Step 1: Set the Scene
  • Find a quiet, well-lit area in your home. Get your college t-shirt and any other props you might have ready to go and plan what you’re going to say and do! Maybe consider involving your family to cheer you on, have a chant ready for your college, etc. The sky is the limit! There’s a prize for the most spirited video, so bring your creativity and excitement!

Step 2: Make the Announcement
  • Ask a family member to help with filming, or find a spot to set your phone to film and make the big announcement! Make sure your voice and college choice can be clearly heard and seen on screen!
  • Make sure to announce the following as clearly as possible: “My name is _________ and I’ll be attending __________ in the fall.

Step 3: Send it in
  • Send your video in to us using the form located here.

Social Media
  • We encourage you to share your Suited for Success kit unboxing photos on Instagram! Make sure to tag @drd4s, and use the hashtag #DRDFSDecisionDay and #IDecided.
